Glucose Oxidase Enzyme | definition of Glucose Oxidase Enzyme by Medical dictionary
glucose oxidase (redirected from Glucose Oxidase Enzyme)
an antibacterial flavoprotein enzyme, obtained from Penicillum notatum and other fungi, which is antibacterial only in the presence of glucose and oxygen, its effect being due to the oxidation of d-glucose to d-glucono-δ-lactone, with the coconversion of O2 to H2O2; used in the preservation of food and in assays for glucose levels.
